1. Who is Jim Edmonds' daughter? Hayley Edmonds is his daughter from a previous marriage.

Although Jim and Meghan have children of their own together, Hayley’s mother is Jim’s first wife, LeAnn Horton, who passed away after battling cancer in 2005. At that point, Hayley moved in with Jim and Meghan.

Today, she is 22 years old, and has recently been spending a lot of time hanging out with her dad

Following a very public cheating scandal earlier this year where Jim was accused of sleeping with the family’s nanny, Meghan and Jim have decided to call it quits.

As Jim posted on Instagram, this father/daughter duo went deep sea fishing together, and he called Hayley his rock.

“Deep-sea fishing off the grid. First time ever for @hayleyedmonds15 to be in the chair,” Jim wrote. “Not ready for the fishing pole yet. The corona was too cold. Thank you H #myrock blood thicker than water. #poorus #family.” 

4. Hayley spoke out in an Instagram comment about Jim’s divorce from Meghan. 

Though Hayley’s Instagram account is now private, she reportedly reposted the photo herself and responded to a comment from a follower who said they hoped that Jim would ask Meghan for forgiveness so their family could be together again.

“I hope she asks for forgiveness by ruining our entire family. But doubt that will happen. Nothing but love here on our side,” Hayley replied. 

5. In the past, Hayley’s been open about her dislike of Meghan.

When the allegations against her father first came out in October, Hayley shared in an interview that she’d been hoping Meghan and Jim would divorce for a long time. 

“I don’t know if I would say narcissistic but, she, like, creates her own problems and loves conflict and things like that,” Hayley said at the time. “The selfishness is miserable for anyone to be around, let alone to be married to her. My whole family has grown closer because we have all had to stay silent in hopes to protect my dad and no one can do it anymore.”

6. Now, it seems like the family is trying to move on. 

Between the quality time Hayley and Jim are spending together and Meghan’s Instagram posts about learning to be a single mother to her three children, it seems all of the Edmonds are moving forward. 

It looks like 2020 will be the fresh start everyone needs, but it’s hard to say if that means the drama will actually, finally come to an end.
